Sprained ankle, avulsion injury, chipped nevicular bone. On tubi-grip. Treatment?
Hi there, I sprained my ankle and chipped the nevicular bone in my foot (avulsion injury) when descending stairs over a week ago. I have tubi-grip on my foot 24hours a day but received no further advice from emergency medical staff e.g. prognosis , pain-killers and rest / exercise periods. Any advice would be much appreciated.
I think you need to take minimum 4 week rest and after that you can start doing exercises. You will need to do warm water fomentation and physiotherapy after this. There is no specific exercise except ankle movements.
